OSSUM MB Jeep ratrod remix:
This kit should contain the full rolling train parts to convert or built a 2WD jeep with a front solid axle, it is design to fit a 35-36 900KV brushless outrunner motor working on 3 cell.
To make this built I used the raised tray, back frame, tub and windshield designed by Intashu.
The 2 speed gear box design is borrowed from 3D Anarchy Jeep built and was fully reworked for this model. It has a functional gear stick lever moving during gears change. The gearbox has a larger bottom housing to accommodate larger gears. The dog teeth are also reinforced.
Although I first used this model with a fixed 3D printed differential I have now switched to this metal solid axle which is more reliable. To get the correct track I replaced the large stock wheel hex by some thinner ones and I fitted low offset wheels.
Please note that this model requires a couple of holes to be made on the chassi frame to fit these parts, I have not redesigned the frame as I though it was not such an issue.
For gear box assembly guidelines take a look at the 3D Anarchy Instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Printed-Willys-RC-4X4/

Suitable steering servo: Hitec HS-225 / HS5245, Futaba S3016
Suitable gear servo: Towerpro MG90D (probably many other micro servos fits)
The front "shocks" were made by soldering a 3x5mm bush onto a 6x5mm brass pipe , I used a M3 partial thread screw as a shaft (head ground flat) connected to a M3 ball end. A shock cap file is included if you want to make a set.
The gear box shifter stick is a M3 partial thread screw, the linkage is 2mm diameter wire. I used a push rod linkage on which I cut the stem to connect the lever with the wire.
Brass pipe 6x5mm and 5x4mm (link to come)
I added a 40mm 12V (or 6V) fan to fit on the front grill, I removed the ESC fan.
